OT Tip of the Week:
The weather if warming up outside so it is time to get some sunshine and explore. Outside play is a great way to get in some core strengthening, balance and shoulder stability exercises. Core strength is the development of the muscles that stabilise, align, and move the trunk of the body. Poor core strength can cause poor posture affecting their gross motor and fine motor skills. Building strong core strength is like building a strong foundation for your child, allowing them to sit at their school desk and complete fine motor activities. Below are a few ideas for completing core strength activities outside, remember core strengthening should be fun!
